Fronttowardsgamer: The PS Vita is almost sure to be a success, but how much of one is still unknown. What would happen if it decimated the 3DS? Well, let’s take a trip into the alternate universe, where the Vita destroys the 3DS.
Im pretty sure sales will be a lot closer this time to each other.
I don't wish one to triumph over the other, but as a 3D evangelist I feel the 3DS has set the 3D movement back by quite a bit...If only for the media backlash it's received in the UK. I wanted to like the 3DS but the 3D effect is quite pitiful. But maybe thats after playing on my cheap 120" projected image for £750. It doesn't seem value for money.
Are mods on a break around here? This place is so bias, it's ridiculous.
Yeah seriously. I'm fine with some of this now and then, but when a story like this is approved in mere hours or minutes, and a story like, 'The Hating Needs to Stop: Why the next generation of handheld gaming is a fair match' http://n4g.com/news/880984/... languishes in submission hell for days before failing it disgusts me.
Thank you, I wrote that article and your comment means a lot.
It failed because it's a blog, but it would have definitely been a better article than this piece of crap.
I see plenty of approved "articles" that are just opinion pieces (a blog).
I don't understand how a SONY fans self esteem can be based off of a system they are looking forward to "beating" another system. It is an incredibly immature concept and does nothing but stir up needless controversy. The purpose of this site should be to report and foster positive community, not continue to stir up trouble. You have failed N4G.
because most of them are kids and think that their SONY is the best and god to them (graphics and other "stuff".. yea, that's immature to bash another companies and want that they would fail, but not Sony.. I want that both companies would release more and more great games, so I could buy Vita someday and both handhelds would have many games to offer to us..
Don't be quick to make generalizations. I love sony more than any other company but I own a Wii and 360. Only a small percentage of console owners are real "fanboys" who can't like more than one company.
where were you in 2006 and 2007? you should have seen this site , there was lot of sony is doomed , ps3 doesnt have games articles in a day lol , those who bought a ps3 between that time and used to come to this site really suffered for their preference , how things have changed uh? well now it does look like a pro sony site.
:D yeah, actually thats a funny truth.. and we all know what next articles will be: 'vita & wii u are doomed', 'will next xbox be faster than next ps or vise versa' .. 'will consoles & handhelds die in next gen', 'will apple release a console and become a pear' ..blah blah.. write real news, people.. oh I don't mind 'top ten' and other lists, because i can find some games, that i've missed so othets too..
People are basically blind to things like that. Its okay to shout '3DS is going to be the greatest system ever' months before anyone even plays it but its taboo to even mention that the VITA has a chance against the 3DS.Just watch if the article said '3DS WILL destroy the VITA' how fast people would agree and dismiss the VITA as nothing but hype. People always jump to say 'Sony fanboys do this and that' while you always see the same person in some Sony article trying to cause trouble.Its okay for them to talk bad about another system and predict its failure but just don't talk bad about theirs
Sony buys nintendo
fok jou 5119
Lol..i honestly dont see them making it without a handheld
Given how much revenue they generate off their handhelds, I can agree with that.
Nintendo would simply go bankrupt before being bought out. They have stated this before.
Can't it just do well against the PSV like the PSP actually did against the DS? Do we really need another console war faction or front? Edit: *facepalm*
3ds is not the same as the ds
yes, it's better..
I don't want the Vita to destroy the 3ds, I want them both to be successful.
No company should have a monopoly in the handheld market. Which is why I am happy that there's fierce competition between the two. If if wasn't for Sony Nintendo would never have dropped the price. If it wasn't for the poor launch of the 3DS Sony would never have such a great line up. Competition is great for the market. XperiaRay
Monopoly/3DS or not, I just hope PSVITA, Sony´s new handheld for once will get the love, support and top sales as it rightfully deserves. Sony has gone all the way for this machine and their fanbase. But I know we both agree on this MasterCornholio ;o)
What was the GBA up against? If anything.
if it wasnt for nintendo sony would not have priced the Vita at 250 if it wasnt for nintendo sony wouldnt have included motion control or touch screen to the vita yup
i got a 3ds and i'm getting a vita. i think that vita is gonna outclass the 3ds and i hope it does aswell. but don't get me wrong, i really want the 3ds to continiue because it has great games like mario zelda and pokemon wich is the reason i want to have both of the handhelds. i have made the vita my personal fav device so i hope it does good for the gaming population :)
I don't even know how to go about commenting on such a obviously unprofessional article. It IS an editorial , but still. Something can only be destroyed if it isn't a very good product. It could be defective, dangerous, shitty, and just not have proper support.More sales play some role but it alone can not destroy a product. The DS sold much more than psp but the psp is by no means "destroyed". An example of a destroyed handheld i guess is the tiger Game.com; shitty sales, poor marketing,no support, some what shitty product for asking price.
Vita is more expensive so i doubt it would sell more than the 3DS. I'm not too bothered about that though. I just want it to get dev support. Piracy killed the PSP's support and i'm sure most people don't want that to happpen again. If the PSP can sell 70 Million with that disadvantage imagine what the Vita can do with proper support.
sure hope not, I want both consoles do well, so well that both companies will work harder than ever before. That way us consumers will be the winners
The Vita is the strongest threat Nintendo has ever had to deal with in the portable market..and this is coming from a huge Nintendo portable fan. The Vita seems to have corrected nearly every problem the PSP had. So I want the Vita to do well, too. Will it overtake Ninty? My guess is no, but if any portable can do it, it's the Vita. I can guaruntee that Nintendo won't get blown out, though. I have a 3DS, and I will most certainly own a Vita at some point, so my interest is in both handhelds.
guys its just a "what if article" no biggie!!! buit i love that sony and nintendo are going head to head... more good games for us gamers :D
I really don't understand this whole new handheld console war heating up. The 3DS has been a pretty miserable failure thus far, and it was a much-hyped addition to Nintendo's long-successful DS line. If the 3DS can perform so badly, so can the Vita. Instead of bickering about which handheld might be better than the other by this time next year, you'd think fanboys from both sides of the aisle would be crossing their fingers for the slim hope that ANY handheld console will still be viable by this time next year.
The 3ds is doing just fine, and its situation is actually improving overall.
Why are repeating inaccurate information?
The world would implode from from shock. I kid I kid On a serious note I think it will be even matched once each of them have a decent ammount of software out. We will have to wait and see untill febuary
I would love nothing more than both dedicated handheld devices to succeed and coexist because that will stop all the detractors from claiming the market is dead.
